Keeping Your Germs At Home

I got this email from a professor last week:

Hi Darlene,

I am really sick today–gotten worse as the day has progressed. I’m wondering if, rather than cancelling my Contracts class on Thursday (at 11 a.m.), I can teach it from home via Adobe Connect.**

So I asked her for the URL of the Class Site, connected a laptop to the projector in the classroom, hooked up a microphone and VOILA.

The professor showed her PowerPoint slides and the students took notes and asked questions.

And no one caught the professor’s germs!!!

**(The professor said that she was inspired by a Verizon commercial that she saw while watching the NFC championship game. It showed a kid who was sick attending school via a robot.)
